we'll look back at the life of andy griffith. good to have you with us. thanks for watching. millions of americans are going to be traveling over the next few days and we're going to by wi buying a lot of gas. republicans wanted to celebrate the fourth of july by hammering president obama over rising gas prices. it isn't working out the way they hoped. today, the national average for a gallon of gasoline is $3.33. it's the lowest price per gallon since last december. over the last three months, gas prices have fallen from a national high of $3.92 back in april. in some southern states in this country, the average cost is already below $3 a gallon. all of a sudden, what's that noise? i can't hear it. it's because the republicans are all of a sudden quiet about energy policy. you see, they were making all kinds of noise about high gas prices back in the spring. leaders of congress, the presidential candidates, and the right-wing media all over this president, saying he's the problem. putting the blame on president obama. >> since this president has been president, the cost of

. the rest of us are counting on you. >>> good morning, i'm melissa harris-perry before we begin, we want to congratulate congressman barney frank and jim ready who got married last night. governor patrick duval officiated and asked if they promised to love each other on sickness and in health, on msnbc and fox, as long as they both shall live. congressman frank the first sitting member of congress to enter into a same-sex marriage. but now onto our top political story. when most of us think of the map of our country, we picture this. 48 states, all smooshed together with two more hovering in the pacific. but if you're one of the two americans currently running to be president of all the states on that map, right now, you're not really thinking much about the vast majority of them, because only four months out from election date, your version of the u.s. map looks a lot like this. this is a map of the battleground states in the presidential election and if you didn't see your state highlighted on that map, hate to break it to you, because your vote is not going to matter much in determini

. and the choosers. you are picking the president for the rest of us. so that means you don't have the luxury of political apathy. we, those of us who live in the all too predictable ballot box behavior states, counting on you to get it right. first of all, don't be fooled by the optics that are meant to signal the candidates understand the lives of scalled ordinary people. you know, like buss with folksy tour names. rich guys pretending they ride the bus is not a signal that they understand your lives. neither is rolling up their cleaves or leaving their neck ties at home or eating pancakes or drinking a beer. you know how politicians show you they can relate to your lives? creating policies that make your lives better. pay attention to what they say to you, not just what they are showing you. and numbers like these, totally unacceptable from a pew poll showed 45% of americans are completely clueless about the supreme court's landmark decision on affordable care act. listen, if it's your vote that determines whether or not the rest of us get health care, swing states, i need to you do a litt

. >> mitt romney has used every trick in the book. romney admits that over the last two years, he's paid less than 15% in taxes on $43 million in income. makes you wonder if some years he paid any taxes at all. >> jennifer: joining me now is david cay johnston, the pulitzer prize winning journalist who covered the tax code for more than a decade for "the new york times." he's a columnist for reuters david, thank you so much for being inside "the war room." >> thank you for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. let me start with that, the inference from that action d more generally. there is a record number of high income earners who pay no federal income tax. how does that work? how do rich people avoid paying taxes. i'm assuming they're rich people. >> well $200,000 puts you in the top 3%. people avoid paying taxes by having losses that they can take, by paying taxes to foreign governments that they deduct dollar for dollar against the u.s. we don't know exactly how the 35,000 people do this and by the way, six of th

overdrive and arms his opponent, mitt romney, with new political ammunition to use against him. look at this. unemployment is stuck at 8.2%. and only 80,000 jobs added in june. the numbers are even worse when you look at minorities. we're covering all sides of this dramatic political story. our own dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemploy

to have that debate. michael sandel, beautiful book. worth reading. thank you again. join us some other jennifer granholm. >> jennifer: i'm jennifer granholm. tonight in "the war room," hey mitt, when are you coming clean on your taxes? mitt romney still backed into a corner. shielding himself from tax questions, bain attacks and outsourcing charges. the man has run for senator governor president after campaigning for almost 20 years will mitt romney finally come clean or will he try to point in another direction any direction? >> celebrating success instead of attacking and denigrating makes america strong. that's the right course for this country. >> jennifer: mitt. it didn't work then. it won't work now. we'll take down more of romney's secrets and lies tonight in "the war room." >> jennifer: the crowd at president obama's rally in san antonio, texas today had a message for his opponent yelling "show us your taxes"! and as we've reported, it is not just democrats. there is a growing chorus of republicans cla

, the employer of the crew. can you break down essentially what this report really does tell us? >> reporter: the report is clear that the initial surprise event, as it's known, was the failure of the speed censor that led the plane to lose its speed measurement. now, pilots are supposed to have trained for that and react in a particular way. and indeed, that's not happened here. when the censor failed, the pilots, realizing something had happened, took a course of action and the way the report describes it, the pilots' inputs were abrupt and excessive. they were a starlet effect. the emotional shock of what had taken place. and then as things got worse, and the reactions became more extreme, it says there was a saturation of the mental resources needed to make sense of the situation. so long story short, something happened, shouldn't have been that serious. the pilot flying reacted in a particular way, and that ultimately doomed the aircraft. >> and this is critical, because i think there was a consideration by french magistrates at one point to investigate these companies for manslaughter.

's policy has been to drive up the cost of energy so americans would use less of it. >> president obama was even asked about this conspiracy during a live news conference in march. >> critics will say on capitol hill that you want gas prices to go higher because you have said before that will wean the american people off fossil fuels onto renewable fuels. how do you respond. >> just from a political perspective, do you think the president of the united states going into election wants gas prices to go up higher? is there anyone here who thinks that makes sense? >> no sense at all, but right wingers still repeated it as long as gas prices were high. if the gas bags paid any attention at all to the actual economic reports, they would have known how far off base they were. in the beginning of may, economists were reporting gas prices had peaked at $128 a barrel. the trend was already moving in the other direction, but of course, republicans continued to blame the president for having sinister motivations. remember, the keystone pipeline, son of a gun, we can't get low prices unless we have

with us now from sandusky, ohio. you are off the bus, officially, and now we can see your smiling face. >> that's right. i'm on firm ground. >> good to know, terafirma. so give me the lay of the land. this is stop number two of four in ohio? >> reporter: right. this is stop number two, and the president will be arriving here about, i'd say, within the hour, we should be hearing from the president. it's also a big ice cream social here. and we expect to hear more of what the president said in his last stop, which was about an hour away from here, where his focus really was on the economy and what his administration has done to, as he puts it, pull the economy back from the cliff. the president realizing and letting his supporters know that the situation is still not great, but it's much better than when he first came into office. and what's important about this region is that they've lost a lot of manufacturing jobs over the past few years. obviously, the auto industry is big in this region, gm and chrysler, at providing jobs for folks. and the last town that we just came from. and they

. duckworth lost both legs and use of one arm in iraq. plus, fires in colorado, drought in the west. more than 3,000 temperature records in june. is global warming to blame? this is exactly what scientists had been predicting. how long can the right wing continue to insist that what we're seeing is a hoax? and remember jonathan krone, the 13-year-old darling of the right? >> so i decided there were too many people who through this, the term conservative around, who didn't understand what they were talking about. >> apparently, he admits he was one of them. now he says he was naive and is joining us tonight. in the side show, how the right managed to conclude president obama is abandoning america for evil europe on independence day. never let the facts get in the way after good story. we begin with health care and whether republicans can repeal it. michael steele was chairman of the republican party, maggie habberman writes for politico. welcome. republicans had vowed to repeal obama's health care law. to do that, mitt romney would have to win and republicans would need to retake the senate and

is not a hero. duckworth lost both legs fighting in iraq and joins us tonight. and how many times did joe walsh say ashley? stick around for the sideshow. robert reich was the secretary during the clinton administration and jared bernstein served with vice president biden. mr. secretary, let me start with you before we get to the politics of it. explain to me the substance. what's going on? what does it mean in the big picture? >> essentially, michael, job growth has stalled. 8.2% unemployment. same as last month, but we also would see that 80,000 jobs were created in june. the average monthly job growth of the last three months has been about 75,000 jobs. a substantial decline from the job numbers we saw in january, february and march. now, it's a similar to a slowdown we have seen in previous years. the hope obviously is that we get more job growth later in the year. it's hard to make good news out of today's job numbers. >> mr. bernstein, where is it headed? i think we're aware of the statistics that since world war ii, no president's been re-elected when the rate has north of 7.4%. is it li

provision, right? what they wanted was a state in which with eused incentives here and there. where we used the tax code and penalized and incentivized. that's what's become the mainstream of democratic policy as well. using the tax code, using insentives and penalties and now they're turning around as if this is some ridiculous notion. this is the model they created. >> you're distracting many e. i'm just reading about the tax reform act. it's one of my favorites. >> this thing, by the way, if you can work your way through what romney actually said, it's kind of sort of true in a constitutional way. we have 51 constitutions in this country. 50 state constitutions, one, you know, federal. and some of these state tunes like massachusetts provide in the constitution very broad power for the state legislation to enact things in the general welfare and they don't need the massachusetts constitutional power to tax to ground it, or they don't even have a commerce clause, obviously. and so, i mean, there's a law school class in which there's a point to be made. he's trying to make. but i an, you c

heroes, the men and women who served us, it's the last thing they talk about. >> look, it's bad enough to hear this nonsense. but to have no leadership step up to denounce it is just as bad. yes, we've all said things. but we've had to stand up and say they're wrong. and wrong makes you a real leader if you can call it like it is. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton.
